German Pancakes

My mom used to make these all the time when I was growing up. We were the envy of the neighborhood because we got hot breakfast before school when others always got cold cereal. Back then, we used to call these "Hootnanny Pancakes" but I have never met another person who calls them that. Most people call them "German Pancakes", "Oven Pancakes", and sometimes "Dutch Babies". My husband's family calls them "Camel Humps". Whatever you call them, they are easy and one of my favorite things to make and eat for breakfast.

6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 t. salt
6 T. butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Using a blender, combine eggs, milk, flour and salt until smooth. Put butter in bottom of 9X13 pan and melt in the heated oven. When the butter starts to bubble, pour egg mixture into the pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, until pancakes get golden brown and lots of humps.

If you want to try something other than traditional syrup, you can serve these with strawberries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar or lemon juice. My personal favorite way to top them is Buttermilk Syrup.
